Today, on the last day of Quake Expo 2011
, QRP release its first add-on pack for Quake mission pack 1: Scourge of Armagon (SoA)!
As the add-on name implies you will also need to have QRP's Map textures v.1.00 (QRP_map_textures_v.1.00.pk3
) pack installed to get replacement textures for all textures in SoA.
All needed files are found on the downloads
Note also that this add-on release only includes diffuse and luma textures!
One texture in this pack that drew my attention was the 'names' texture that is used on top of the three crosses in hip2m4.
There are one pair of initials on each cross: GB, SM and SB.
First I thought it stood for names of people involved in the development of SoA at Hipnotic but no such names corresponded to the initials!
After some research it came down to be either:
- Richard 'Levelord' Gray's favourite comedians George Burns, Steve Martin and Shorty Bernstein
- Richard 'Levelord' Gray's former managers at Apogee/3d Realms George Broussard, Scott Miller and Steve Blackburn
Due to the controversy between Hipnotic and 3d Realms at the time I would guess it is the latter!
Last I would like to thank OoPpEe for the suggestion to add transparency to the sfloor4_3 texture in the SoA start map.
Looking through the windows now reveals two 'rooms' equipped with lasers!
